From 8th to 17th September 2014, the 2nd Summer School of the ITaRS community took place in the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) at the Research Center of Jülich (Germany). Dimitra, Edouard and Lukas participated to the summer school.
We had the opportunity to meet academia and industrial experts of the clouds and precipitation remote sensing community. The lectures were very interesting and led to fruitful discussions between fellows and all the invited partners.
Besides attending the lectures, we also worked on challenging team projects by using measurements from the instruments of the ground-based JOYCE station. Lukas’s team won the right to take part to the upcoming TOPROF workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark (18-20 November 2014).
It was very nice to see again all the fellows. Once we spent a nice evening in beautiful Cologne. The summer school was also about sports: we played once a football match and we were cycling every morning and every evening between our hotel downtown and the research center.
